"But the effect of her being on those around her was incalculably diffusive: for the growing good of the world is partly dependent upon unhistoric facts; and that things are not so ill with you and me as they might have been, is half owing to the number who lived faith...

We made it friends, I'm not sure what shape we're in but we made it? Here in the UK we've just entered week 12 of Lockdown and things are beginning to ease, we won't have full services operating until July 15th, social distancing guidelines will continue to be in place...

Our home educating was founded on a philosophy which emphasised the importance of good literature in the past decade, it was a good start, but stories in particular? A storyformed life was a new concept to me four years ago, a beautiful introduction made by author Sara...

As I sat on the edge of my almost 13yo son’s bed I could see his face was solemn. He’d been at the Air Cadets that night and came home a little withdrawn and thoughtful. I accompanied him up to bed and give him a goodnight blessing, young hearts are often more open at...
